That's one hell of a layout Jeff :shock::shock:!!

I'll bet it looks fantastic in "O" gauge - if it were mine, I'd never come out of my "hole" !!!!  What a fantastic challenge to "scenic" something that big.

It's a pity I don't seem to manage to get over to UK during the exhibition season - maybe one day - it would be great to meet up again with more time to spend than we had in November.

When are the shows you mentioned ?  As you said in another post, a YMR "gathering" would be great at a show somewhere.

Good Jeff, can't wait to see the final picture.  It seems to take longer to do the photos & write the story than doing the actual bit of modelling.

 That looks really good Jeff, and from your explanation of the subject it seems that you have the patience of a saint :doublethumb:doublethumb

A good narrative, jeff, and oh! The cruel wit of some club members.:lol: It all looks rather excellent to me, and like others I can't wait to see the finished picture.

Question: Your problems began with a shortage of necessary supplies. As a club how do members coordinate wants and needs? Is there some sort of Quartermaster or "ordering member" :question

Jeff

I don't really see any problem, as normal with scenery, it turns out fine in the end, looks like a stunning layout that the club is putting together, tell me does the club have a uniform or have you just worn the same clothes to each meeting :roll:

:mutley:mutley:mutley Coincidence really, alan. Some weeks ago I had worn the shirt you are commenting about to the club on a night when we were building the fiddle yard baseboard. I got PVA glue on the side of it (SWMBO went daft 'cos it was fairly new). No matter how its washed, the PVA won't completely come out, so if I know I'm working on the layout I wear it to save messing up another one. The jumper is one I always wear when it's cold and I'm modelling.

I recently counted the T shirts in my wardrobe and after throwing out the old and tatty ones, I had 46 left :exclam:exclam I'll possibly not buy any more in the New Year Sales :exclam:exclam

I think that looks tremendous Jeff and thanks for the "how you did it", I'll find that very useful when I commence my landscaping.

Ken.

That little corner looks great Jeff :thumbs - I suspect there isn't a gardener in the land who wouldn't be proud to have a corner like that !!

I particularly like the way the plants are higher at the back gradually reducing to just tufty grass and bare earth.  In real life, many a forgotten corner looks like that - the front "trodden" down by people taking short cuts or simply avoiding using paths, and struggling against the pollution of empty fag packets (perhaps discarded in disgust by ex-smokers :roll::roll: and broken bottles etc. to say nothing of dogs and cats adding to the general "fertiliser" !!

I also think your choice of colouring is excellent - a real variety of "wild" plants which have colonised an inhospitable bit of unused ground.  Nature has a way of creating plants for all seasons and conditions.  Some will become lush as others die back and visa-versa.  For me at least, a great piece of modelling and attention to detail. ;-);-)

Quality work, Jeff. Is the fencing beside the lorry a commercial product?

Looks good Jeff.

 

Those fence posts in the last picture.  Did you buy them or make them?

How about popping that in the Hints, Tips & Smaller Projects section Jeff then I can link to it in the Index. Don't want it to get lost.

Glutton for punishment, Jeff! Good to see foam board there. Reminds me of those great French house frontages built by Misha on the second (?) forum.
